Pads breaking from a drop is not suprising, they are a very shatter prone type of material. So yes, with it broken you should not still use it, maybe without the broken piece in an emergency but surely not with the broken piece in there. But that's not the biggest thing. To me, that pad itself is the issue. LOOK AT IT. I've never seen a surface that looked like it had melted such as this. Its either not OEM, maybe organic, but certainly total crap. My trackbikes oem pads look like new compared to that and I use them hard enough to get fade.
